Used linens pro­cessed by Clean com­mer­cial laun­dry in Yeovil have a new lease of life af­ter be­ing do­nated to ape res­cue cen­tre, Mon­key World.

About 4,000 sheets and du­vet cov­ers pre­vi­ously used in ho­tels around the re­gion have been de­liv­ered to the cen­tre in Dorset, where they will be used by its pri­mate in­hab­i­tants. The used cot­ton sheets and du­vet cov­ers – known as ‘rag linen’ – are usu­ally sold to a re­cy­cling com­pany when they are worn out. But when Geoff Mil­ver­ton, site di­rec­tor at Clean, vis­ited Mon­key World he no­ticed the team there used linen for the an­i­mals. They pro­vide ex­tra com­fort and shel­ter and are also used for play, for ex­am­ple by hid­ing food in­side sheets strung up as ham­mocks.

Clean Yeovil has also put aside a large num­ber of used tow­els for the RSPCA’s West Hatch Wildlife and An­i­mal Cen­tre near Taun­ton.
